Franchise Notes: British Basketball League Approves Ownership Change Of Surrey

The British Basketball League approved a change of ownership for Surrey. The franchise will now be known as Surrey United and will continue to play its home games at Surrey Sports Park. The new ownership is a joint venture between Surrey Sports Park and the London United Basketball Club (BBL). ... Australian Football League Sydney Swans "could have become the Sydney Redbacks or even the Two Blues of Sydney, and the club's famous red-and-white colours changed had ideas developed to breathe life into the then struggling club in the early 1990s come to fruition." And "there were even suggestions of a merger with North Melbourne, who were also facing financial struggles during that period." The Swans "are about to play in their 15th finals series" in 18 seasons and have a "record membership approaching 37,000 but the outlook was far from rosy" when Chair Richard Colless joined the club's board in '93 (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 9/4).
